Holocaust Denier David Irving Whines in Indignation Over Op-Ed on Rommel

Reading an opinion article penned by an American professor on an Israeli, English language media website, Holocaust denier David Irving went livid after reading how ‘those who glorify German Field Marshal Rommel are actually encouraging Neo-Nazism.’

On October 9th, Arutz Sheva posted an opinion article by English professor (ret.) Robert Scott Kellner of the U. of Massachusetts and Texas A&M U, decrying what he describes as the skewed rewriting of history that glorifies German WWII Field Marshal Erwin Rommel as a great military genius.

Books praising the Field Marshal, who was defeated at El Alamein by the British General Montgomery in the famous 1942 battle that put an end to Nazi plans to conquer the Middle East – and extend the Final Solution to its Jews – even include a tribute by US General Wesley Clark in the foreword to military historian Charles Messenger’s Rommel in Palgrave Macmillan’s Great Generals series.
